Rowley Police to Summons Man Who Stole From Child’s Egg Stand
ROWLEY — Chief Scott A. Dumas reports that the Rowley Police Department will issue a summons to a Lynn man in connection with a theft from a young girl’s egg stand earlier this month.
A MALE, AGE 35, OF LYNN, will be summonsed for Larceny Under $250.
On Friday, July 7, at approximately 5:10 p.m., Rowley Police responded to Central Street for a report of a theft. A preliminary investigation revealed that the man allegedly stole four dozen eggs and a small amount of cash from the girl’s roadside stand. The 3-year-old girl was running the stand with her mother.
After further investigation, which was led by reserve officer Gavin Forni, Rowley Police on Wednesday identified the suspect involved and will summons him for the theft.
“This is an extremely shameful act exacerbated by the fact that the victim was a child,” Chief Dumas said. “I am very pleased with the outcome of the investigation and I’m proud of the work done by the officers involved.”
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
